Black Book Index Tops Last Year’s Measure

By Staff Writer July 08, 2018

Black Book’s Used Vehicle Retention Index increased in June to 113.3 from 112.9 in May.


The Index stood at 113 in June 2017.


The Black Book Used Vehicle Retention Index is calculated using Black Book’s published Wholesale Average Value on two- to six-year-old used vehicles, as percent of original typically equipped MSRP. It is weighted based on registration volume and adjusted for seasonality, vehicle age, mileage, and condition.


June saw several car and truck segments make a splash during the month with small cars and SUVs providing the biggest impact to the overall index.
